You may have noticed today that Google has launched a clay inspired logo featuring the characters of Pokey and Gumby, all in honor of what would have been Art Clokey's 90th birthday.
While doing your Google searching today, check it out. Gumby is standing with several balls of clay. Clicking each one springs a different character to life.
If you get a chance today, visit YouTube to watch some of the Pokey and Gumby cartoons. I remember watching them as a kid. They were one of the reasons I got into Stop motion in the first place.
You can learn more about Art Clokey on his Wikipedia page too.
